An exquisite haven of tranquillity, beauty and history, situated in the scenic countryside of Torcé.
The Château is an exquisite Neorenacentist 19th-century castle, constructed in 1860 by Count Ferdinand de Langle and his brother Alphonse. Set on 15 acres of wooded parkland, this idyllic place will soon again be a destination for guests and friends, near and far, from South Africa and the world, to enjoy its natural beauty with Chef Chantel Dartnall and her family.
